One of TCU’s top young players announced his plans to transfer

TCU is losing another player to the transfer portal.

Freshman guard Kendric Davis announced plans to transfer on Monday via Twitter.

“Things don’t always go as we plan but God is in control,” Davis wrote. “With that being said, I will be transferring with three years of eligibility left. I will never forget the great fans at TCU.”

Davis is expected to consider a number of schools as his next destination, including LSU, SMU, Arizona State, San Diego State, Villanova, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Davis played well in his true freshman season, seeing more playing time when Jaylen Fisher left.

He played in all 37 games with two starts and averaged 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 2 assists per game.

Davis scored a season-high 22 points at No. 17 Iowa State (2/9/19) on a season-best 7-of-10 shooting and scored 16 points the following week against No. 14 Kansas (2/11/19).

TCU now has 14 players on scholarship, but that is expected to be trimmed to the requisite 13 by the end of the month.

Santee promoted

The TCU men’s basketball team announced that graduate assistant Corey Santee has been promoted to player development coordinator. Santee replaces Ontario Lett, who is leaving the program.

Santee has spent the past two years as a graduate assistant on Jamie Dixon’s staff, earning his master of liberal arts degree, and had a noticeable impact on players. Alex Robinson, who broke Santee’s assists record at the school last season, credited Santee with his development.

Santee played for TCU from 2001-05, becoming a two-time All-Conference USA player, and then played eight seasons overseas.
